USUK REC-LIST NOVEMBER 2014

Well here it is, the rec-list re-furbishment of this gross post you’ve all been waiting for. Remember bolded x’s are additional sequels or branch off stories and x’s after the authors name are links to their other social media and fandom related sites.

Last Seen’ does NOT mean ‘fanfiction last updated…’ it means when the author last updated any of their linked accounts.

If that seems strange to you remember with the dying state of the Hetalia fandom as a whole (not just USUK shippers) it is nice to know that there are people still out there.

Link summaries and fiction status/type will appear on hover, my apologies and condolences go out to you mobile users but I am afraid a computer is required for this task.

BEFORE ANYTHING

Here is my favorite fanfiction of all time:

The Tell Tale Heart’s by RainingPaperButterflies  x  

Alfred and Arthur hated each other from the moment they met, and decided instantly that they wanted nothing to do with the other. However when forced to share a dorm room, they begin to find that avoiding each other is going to be harder than it looks.

Mention this and I will gush for .02 seconds before bursting into tears and falling to the floor clutching my heart. It was one of the very first fanfictions I read on the lackluster internet of my black and white kindle before I knew the glory of having a fanfiction account.

Speaking of high-school au’s guess what’s next?

Hitman Fic: "Dead Men"

Characters: Hitman & Ivan Braginski

~Dead Men~

A simple cardboard square made up the field of battle for a war manned by wooden effigies. Faceless pawns and deformed bishops, moving towers and horse idols dueling to the beat of a clock; all for the purpose of defending an all powerful queen and useless king. Chess is considered a dance of minds enjoying the make-believe destruction of metaphorical kingdoms of light and darkness…

He just thought it was obnoxiously boring.

Since it's "Arthur Kirkland Appreciation Week", what are the fics where you personally liked Arthur the best? :D

Oooh, excellent question, anon!

It can be a little hard finding fics that capture what I love best about Arthur. I mean, I love him because he’s such a complicated character. He’s a gentleman AND the erotic ambassador. He has trouble talking about his feelings, but he also has an amazing facility with words.

Here are some of my favorite portrayals of Arthur:

Ruthlessly Competent (with a soft spot)

  • Spades (by simplytrop) – Arthur reacts wonderfully to finding out that a bumbling, no-nothing time-traveler is the new King of Spades.
  • Never Your Hero (by General Kitty Girl) – If you want kickass England, here’s where to go. Don’t expect romance though, this is a parent/child sort of relationship. (Also, be warned that America can come off as a bit slow and helpless to give England room to shine.)

Secretly Romantic (but he’s not going to admit it)

  • Cold December Night (by Car) – “All England wanted was one kiss from America… What England wanted, he got.”
  • In Such a State (by 9mm Meg) – Arthur has to find his way out of his porcelain predicament while dealing with his growing feelings for Alfred.
  • The Romantic (by Teenage Mouse) Arthur decides “to build the perfect partner for himself, in the form of a personal android named Alfred.”

Kinky and In Control

And, of course, I love every possible portrayal of drunk England ;)

~Existent~ 

Comfortable. It was a simple word that he had never much cared for, but perhaps the best word for describing his present life. He could be honest in saying he had lived in both rags and riches over his many years, but what he had now was something he hadn’t experienced before. World affairs, politics, and even the current social unrest plaguing his population aside, there was a kind of unspoken contentment when lying here…and it was only ever here.

Four unremarkable walls in an unremarkable room, furnished with items that had been chosen more so for necessity than sentiment. The pine dresser, unmatching mahogany bedside tables, and the wooden desk hidden beneath mounds of unsorted paperwork, accompanied by a chair that functioned more like a coat rack; it was all just so…forgettable. Even the bed, adorned with nothing but simple linens and no decoration to speak of, was just another requisite for the makings of a bedroom.

But it was his bedroom, their bedroom when travels abroad were possible. They were only two people who had ever slept in this room and this bed. The only people who ever used these sheets or hid personal items in the drawers of the bedside tables, and the only people who walked barefoot on the carpet or stored clothes in the dresser and over the chair. The curtains over the windows were only ever opened or closed by their hands, just as the door was never locked unless they willed it. They were the only forces with the power to alter anything in this place. It was a sanctuary beyond a world they couldn’t control…a world Arthur, at least, had tried to control lifetimes ago only to discover how powerless he really was.

However, in this room…in this refuge there were no expectations or surprises. There were no enemies to fight and no allies to impress. There was only a simple room with simple fixtures, a place for everything and everything in its place. There was a smell to it that never changed; the scent of Alfred’s same old detergent and same shampoo, with his same aftershave he never needed but still used. In the morning the smell was all over him and there was almost always a subtle soreness between his legs…but a quiet pleasure in the memories of what caused it.

Even the few mornings he woke without the ache, the smell and memories of the night before were never disappointing.

A part of him resented such happiness in this temporary domestication, as it only ever happened the few times of the year he came to visit Alfred in America. From an outcaste heir of Rome and whipping boy of Europe, he had grown into a global terror, an empire…and now this? Could anyone have predicted a former crusader and privateer would hang up his vengeance and weapons for this intermittent commonplace life? He had spent most of his days as one of the doubters and sometimes the lingering skepticism of this reality gnawed his thoughts. Sometimes when he lied beneath Alfred he felt the deep seeded urge to fight and conquer again. Sometimes he even gave into the compulsions, but never once had the man he dominated resented him for it.

In a way…this room had domesticated Alfred too. His once rambunctious young lad, his wild and eventually rebellious child, was now an independent world power and his strongest ally. His man had become something great and terrifying, just as he had been once, and made him both weary and proud.

It was funny, but everywhere other than this room his Alfred was America. Never once beyond the threshold had either of them ever addressed the other by their national name; they were simply Alfred and Arthur, my love and my darling, good morning and good night…

Gazing absently at this precious yet unremarkable room, stroking one of the arms around him and listening to Alfred’s even breaths, he was at peace. In the few minutes before Alfred would wake, he could reflect upon all of these things and feel satisfied. It wasn’t ever for more than a few days at a time but after so long without moments like this…it was enough.

He just wanted to enjoy being home…a little while longer.

I know you've done WW2 recs, but have you done a WW1 rec? If not, do you know any good WW1 fics? I am slightly obsessed with that time period at the moment but can't really find any good fics myself...

Hi anon! You’re right, WW1 fics are a little harder to find than WW2 ones. But since it’s the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War, now is probably a good time to do a list.

USUK stories

  • 1915 (by RobinRocks) - England invites America to travel on the Lusitania. I’m sure this will end well. Warning for temporary character death.
  • At Daybreak (by Teenage Mouse) - Sometimes being honest can be just as scary as going into battle.
  • Grateful (by the devil’s waitress) - “If you’re grateful for anything I’m about to do in the next year, act like it.”

nezznar  asked:

i know you are mostly a usuk-recs kinda guy, but i was wondering if you knew of any good fics set in colonial america, usuk or not/shippy or not?

Actually, it’s hard to find fics set in colonial American times that aren’t USUK! Even the FrUS stuff is usually about how America is trying to get revenge / prove himself to England :)

I’m not sure if you wanted AUs or not, but I’m going to include both because there just aren’t enough colonial!America AUs.

Warnings: Your heart may explode

Summary: “You did all of this…for me?” Arthur sobbed, not caring about his pride any more. “Why?”

Alfred let go of Arthur’s hands and wrapped his arms around the other’s body in a comforting embrace. Arthur truly lost his reserve then and quickly held his companion back, closing his eyes to completely forget their audience and let this moment be theirs alone.

“Other than to see you happy, I wanted to ask you a question…but, before that, there’s one more thing I need to do.”

~One~

Blood was so fascinating to him. The liquid genetic memory that sustained life continued pouring out of him and all he could do was stare in wonder. It was so warm, this crimson sap of humanity…it could keep a human body going for decades and power the endless complexities of its mind. For a being sustained on the cast off sorrows and pains of others, essentially the fumes of mankind’s despair…it was so wonderful to finally have substance. To be thawed without needing the touch of hellfire against his skin.

This death was so…beautiful.

“If only you had obeyed the man could have been spared, you selfish monster!”

His glacier blue eyes glowed with the power of his demonic-spirit so close to the surface of this mortal shell, and looked up to behold the man whose sword kept him staked to the base of the dais. The power of heavenly steel kept him trapped within the body he’d possessed to walk the earth…though it would also take the life of his vessel in turn. It was trivial, really.

Though the furious seraph, the underling of St. Michael before him, was not so inconsequential.

However much the angel continued to lash him with his angry words, the ensnared demon decided to spend his last moments marveling his executioner. His hair looked as though his halo had turned to spun silk above his head to crown such a flawless face. His eyes were the color of life’s natural zenith, the spring the demon had actually absconded from hell to appreciate. Autumn fell in a myriad of gold and yellow over his body, as though God Himself had taken the season and fashioned earthly armor to shelter His beloved soldier. His skin was winter, white like Christmas snow and tinged with the Yule sunrise that colored him red with emotion.

It was ironic to him that the embodiment of the all he’d ever longed to see in existence was in this angel. The dream he’d yearned to live since waking beneath the Devil’s altar; to be human and live beneath a sky and not a ceiling of earth, to see the world ever changing around him, while God’s breathes and tears created sensation upon his skin…

It was all he wanted, it was everything to him…and now his last chance was growing cold at the feet of a weeping crucifix in Boston.

Everything was quiet before he realized his angel was kneeling over him, his hands on the hilt of the sword in his gut and eyes locked onto his…faltering.

“You’re crying,” he stated, as though afraid of his own words voicing something blasphemous.

The demon lifted a bloodstained hand from his wound to his face and felt evidence of this truth. Tears were indeed falling and he smiled, “I’ve…always wondered what that would be like.”

The angel stilled again and the demon felt the other’s indecision as tangibly as his body heat, which was so warm…his own dying body ached for it. “You’re a demon…demons don’t cry. Who are you?”

Who are you?

I wish I knew

Darkening blue eyes found spring again and all at once he calmed and stared once more in wonder.

God so loved His angels that He gave them flesh when performing His will on earth. This body before him was beautiful, strong…and mortal…

The Devil so hated this world he gave his demons the power to invade and corrupt life. Any life.

This life.

His hand covered in tears and blood, his muscles straining to reach out and touch that flawless face (which surprisingly did not pull away) rested against the other’s cheek and for the first time in his life…there was peace.

And a jealousy that would cower the Devil himself.

“I am you.”

Claws erupted from his once human nails and latched into that angelic skin. The seraph gasped then screamed, but not even the burning holy water he bled could change the demon’s course, as he jerked the angel forward into a searing kiss. The demon’s free hand arrested the other’s arm but not before the sword was wretched from his mortal vessel and repositioned to stab his heart.

The blade never finished its purpose, as the angel was suddenly paralyzed – and no longer alone in its own mind.

The seraph shrieked and fell onto his back, crying out with only his echoes in the vaulted ceiling above to respond. He convulsed and seized, tearing at his own skin and demanding that this terrible darkness invading his soul leave. He could feel inhuman hands wrapping around his heart, digging talons into the muscle and now controlling each beat on a whim. It was through these means that he felt himself growing weaker and weaker. He could hear the beats in his head becoming lethargic…and finally stopping.

He stared unseeingly up at the night sky through stained glass…stagnant…and cold.

The first thump was faint; the second was just as so…then a third and soon a steady succession. His eyes blinked once…twice…then opened fully and he could see St. Peter’s likeness staring back. The church was so quiet but for his heart beat and soon the clink of his armor, as he pushed himself up and sat back on his haunches. He looked at his hands, turning them over and back, seeing them barely soiled and…so much smaller than his last.

As he stood, he looked down at his growing shadow in the candlelight and a smile spread across his face.

“Arthur…that’s your name, right?” he whispered to the darkness and beheld the twisted hybrid of his new feathered silhouette. “We’re beautiful together, you and I…the horns your halo rests upon look just right for you.”

anonymous asked:

So we all know how your Arthur was very awkward around little!Alfred during the colonial days, and later resorted to tough love (I don't blame the old man) XD Is there any point of time when Alfred is the awkward one instead, like, he doesn't know how to act around Arthur? ^_^

X’D Good Lord, I absolutely LOVE self-conscious/unsure Alfred~ >w< Gah, I’m shameless in loving this~

Yes, actually, there are certain situations that really bring out Al’s awkward side. Sticking with the “NYH” universe, Alfred tries to act tough in every aspect of war up to the WWI time period, but for the most part meeting Arthur on a battlefield as an enemy or ally makes Alfred very nervous and feeling unprepared. He may be able to physically over power Arthur (his canon super strength is something I kept in the “NYH” universe) but his lack of confidence and actual WANT to hurt Arthur has always been something Arthur has been able to exploit and gain the upper hand (even during the Battle of Yorktown during the American Revolution, Arthur overcame Alfred and COULD have killed him - regardless of his feelings). Alfred also tends to be pretty awkward in upper class social situations, ESPECIALLY when Arthur is there. :) He still has that feeling of a little kid wanting to impress his mentor and not gloriously fuck up, so this tends to make him over think and make more mistakes than he otherwise would. (Alfred is just so adorable in a fine suit, sweating bullets, and looking at fancy hors d'oeuvres like they need to go back in the oven a little longer)

As a foot note here, there are times when Alfred is TRULY confident (and not that silly feigned confident he’s known for) in front of Arthur. :) Ain’t no body better at riding rough in a saddle (except maybe Antonio XD), flying any kind of plane or helicopter, and can tinker away in a garage for days having at every gadget under the sun taking it apart and putting it back together better. He loves yapping away about technology and science (yes, I’m all aboard the nerdy-geek Al ship), he keeps the canon love of archeology and I actually think Al loved dipping into elements of biology. Anything with the possibility of adventure - Al is ALL for it. ^_^
